Maximizing CTA Expo / Emerging Manager Forum
CTA EXPO LLC was established to provide a venue where Commodity Trading Advisors and Emerging Managers could meet potential capital sources and focus on issues that are crucial to growing their businesses in today’s changing economic and regulatory environment. Registrations have grown for our conference in Chicago from 140 in 2008 to 450 in 2016. Because CTA EXPO / Emerging Manager Forum conferences are one day conferences they have a heavy local attendance so each conference gives you the opportunity to meet new people. Capital sources, including asset allocators, pool operators and professional clients, attend CTA EXPO / Emerging Manager Forum events free.
